I'm looking for suggestions where to reposition my Door Camera. The main goal is to get a better view of the face of someone when they get close to the door. Currently its position just above the door facing down. So I get a nice view of my front door area, but I never get a good view of the persons face. How or where should I reposition this to maximize the chases I get their face .
We can see the images now. The problem is the camera placement which should be to the side so the PIR sensor can detect motion properly. You have motion head-on which may or may not work reliably. It's not clear as to what other mounting places may be available and where the motion is needed to be detected (seems to be a garage/driveway on the right and maybe a sidewalk on the left). I'm kinda thinking mounting over the garage door at the corner closest to the door may be the best location. A video doorbell would actually be the best solution.
I actually have another Camera to the right in the middle of the garage and just upgraded it to the Arlo Pro 3 with continuous power so I'm getting good videos of the folks coming up the drive way now. I was just hoping to get a close up of their face. Unfortunately there is no room for a Arlo Doorbell as I only have a like 2 inches of space.
Potentially when the wireless version comes out but now for now was trying to figure out how to make it slightly better with what I got.
